Spider veins are red, blue and purple lines that often appear near the surface of the skin. These small, visible veins may appear alone or in a web-like pattern. Spider veins can appear anywhere on the body, but are commonly seen on the face and legs.
While these small varicose veins are generally not cause for concern, they do occasionally result in uncomfortable symptoms like swelling or a feeling of heaviness or achiness in the legs.
There are many potential causes of spider veins, including:
Some cardiovascular problems can also cause spider and varicose veins, so it is important to see your doctor to rule out more serious conditions. If you are concerned about your spider veins due to cosmetics or uncomfortable symptoms, we can help you find treatment solutions so you can say goodbye to your spider veins for good.
At Advanced Vein Clinics, we offer the following spider vein treatments:
This procedure has been around for nearly a century and is still considered one of the most effective ways to treat spider and varicose veins. A saline solution is injected directly into the targeted veins, causing them to collapse and disappear from view.
One of the newer options in spider vein treatment, laser procedures use an intense beam of laser light to heat the vein and collapse it completely. The damaged vein is eventually reabsorbed by the body and blood is naturally rerouted through healthy veins in the area. Laser treatments are non-invasive, with few if any risks or downtime involved.
